Is the Philippines Educating for Competitiveness?

Episode #019
(49:31 min 45.3MB)

From the perspective of a globalized world, Juan Miguel “Mike” Luz, International Institute of Rural Reconstruction president, explores whether the Philippines is educating for competitiveness or is barely trying to educate for competence. He discusses five disconnects in Philippine education: the two-types of Philippine basic education, the low pay of teachers, the school age of children, the male drop-out rate and the isolation of Muslim Filipino children.

The music is provided by Dieter Bachmann.
